Teen Sailor Reaches Completes Leg Of Trip Around World

The 15-year-old Dutch sailor, Laura Dekker, who is on a solo trip around the world completed the longest leg of her voyage by reaching St. Maarten.

She says that she’s not used to being on land quite yet:

"It's really weird. It's not moving and not bouncy. I don't think I can live in a house at the moment."

The Dutch teenager started her trip in Gibraltar on Aug. 21 and spent a couple months in the Canary Islands waiting for the hurricane season to end.

This kid is incredible! We were just learning to drive at 15, and she’s sailing around the world!!
